In the mood for some scare-ification? Then we heartily, bloodily, and spookily recommend you check out the Tales From Beyond The Pale Season 2 box set, which is released today. A series of horror-themed audio plays, TFBTP is the brainchild of terror auteurs Larry Fessenden (Beneath) and Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead) who, according to press release-legend, conceived the idea during “a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void.”
Season 2 was recorded live in New York and features the vocal talents of Vincent D’Onofrio, Mark Margolis, James Le Gros, Kate Lyn Sheil, and Fessenden’s Jug Face costar Sean Young, among others. Besides Fessenden and McQuaid, story scribes include Simon Barrett (the mighty You’re Next) and British horror novelist Kim Newman. In addition to the tales themselves, the box set also boasts a DVD chronicling the history of the project and the staging of the shows.
The release of the season 2 box set comes ahead of this weekend’s Stanley Film Festival at the Colorado Hotel, the locale that inspired Stephen King to write The Shining and where the TFBTP team will unleash two tales created just for the event.
But enough of my blather. They say a scream is worth a thousand words — well, at least I do — so please do check out the screech-suffused Tales From Beyond The Pale season 2 trailer below.
